Bundesliga. With three goals from Lewandowski, Bayern beat Cologne 4-0 and break records

With a triplet of its star Robert Lewandowski, Bayer Munich thrashed Cologne 4-0 on Saturday and scored in his 66th consecutive game, a record in the Bundesliga. Thus the striker managed to reach 300 goals, positioning himself as the second top scorer in the history of the competition.

Lewandowski opened the scoring in the 9th minute and with a goal from Frenchman Corentin Tolisso (25) they put Bayern on track for victory before half an hour. In the second half, the Pole added another two goals (62, 74) to finish off Cologne, which falls to eighth position after this defeat.

Victory at the RheinEnergie Stadion allows Bayern to return to winning ways after their 2-1 loss the previous day against Borussia Mönchengladbach, in a match in which Julian Nagelsmann’s team had a very important number of casualties due to covid-19.

On Friday, Borussia Dortmund had thrashed Freiburg 5-1 and had come within three points of first place, but the Bavarian giant also responded forcefully and was able to get back up with six more.

The fight for the title in this Bundesliga seems like a matter of two, since the third party, Hoffenheim, was even more off the hook by losing 2-1 against Union Berlin, which thanks to that victory provisionally placed fourth, within the zone of Champions League and reaching points to his rival this Saturday.

Lewandowski’s hat-trick and 300th goal come just before he revalidates his ‘The Best’ award in the annual FIFA awards, where he is on the list with the Argentine Lionel Messi and the Egyptian Mohamed Salah.
